Crime Victim's Guide

A Crime Victim's Guide to the Justice System in Arkansas, a service provided by the Arkansas Crime Information Center, was created to assist victims of crime to have a better understanding of the Arkansas criminal justice system so victims are more able to exercise their rights. It is also designed to inform victims of services available to them throughout the state including shelter, cash assistance, counseling and private support organizations. This guide is not intended as a legal reference or to provide legal advice. Victims’ Rights laws and an explanation of the court process is provided in the Crime Victims’ Guide Book.

History of Laura's Card

"As a survivor of vehicular assault, I know violence is about control. I have high hopes that Laura's card will educate and empower victims and their families. Information and available resources help victims take back their lives. Victims and their families are entitled to rights and resources that will assist them in their journey to recovery. It is my hope that tragedy will be turned to triumph, and victims will become victors."
